£1,550 raised by our students at the ‘Art for Ark’ Auction

Monday 27 March 2017

We are thrilled with our students’ success at ‘Art for Ark’ auction. Sandy (Year 13) and Sara (Year 9) raised a total of £1,550 for our art department at this event.

Their art work has been selected by Saatchi Gallery earlier this month to be sold at the auction, where the standard of entries was exceptionally high. Sandy and Sara were invited to the Gallery in Duke of York Square, West London, along with their art teacher Ms West. They attended an afternoon tea reception for the student-artists and guests there had a chance to meet them before the auction started. Students enjoyed the afternoon tea and the opportunity to see their work hung in such a fantastic space, and the guests were blown away by the talent they saw. Sandy’s work is titled “Baby Trump” and Sara named her work as “Fictional Character”. Both pieces of art work met extremely positive response from the guests.

The ‘Art for Ark’ auction arranged in partnership with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and all the money raised in the auction will go back to schools’ art departments.

Many congratulations to Sara and Sandy for such an achievement!
